According to reports in France, Paris Saint-Germain chief Leonardo is battling coach Thomas Tuchel over his pursuit of Chelsea midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko.

Bakayoko has spent the last two seasons on loan at AC Milan and Monaco and is set to leave the club again this summer.

According to French media outlet Le 10 Sport, Bakayoko could become a Paris Saint-Germain player if Paris Saint-Germain chief Leonardo gets his way.

Leonardo is keen to set up a loan arrangement with Chelsea for Bakayoko, which would include a permanent option. The stumbling block isn’t Chelsea nor the player, but PSG coach Tuchel.

The German isn’t convinced the midfielder fits his system and has told Leonardo as much during transfer talks.
